Story Behind the Story: Christine Lindsey


This story that is set in India circa 1919 is so dear to my heart. Some of my ancestors on my mother’s side were Irish officers who served in the British Cavalry during England’s rule of Colonial India—the British Raj. It’s a glittering, fascinating era that is long gone. Somehow I grew up on stories set in India. MM Kaye’s Far Pavilions and Shadow of the Moon became the most romantic stories I ever read and even after many readings still sweep me away.

To cut a long story short, I had the intense joy of going to India last January to observe a ministry that focuses on teaching the gospel to children in a camp setting. There I saw the Indian culture of song and dance gorgeously portrayed in these children. Indian children prefer to sing and dance in their camp settings which is so different from our NA children who love sports.

  • Thank you Nicole for having me as a guest on your blog. Writing Shadowed in Silk was a real labor of love—and the kind of book I like to read. High stakes with political intrigue, a thriller with a gun runner and Russian spy thrown into the mix, and a love story that seems impossible. Only God could untangle this one.
